Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Quite surprising, but I'm able to imagine how it's difficult if you have other duties, and from time to time just want to not be responsible, because of a kind of fatigue.

Anyway, all the best in the new year Smiley

No, but Dobby still is free! He is going to serve Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Putin is going to PAY HIM to kick Barack Obama's poop dumper because Vladimir Putin is a hero to Mother Russia! He will destroy He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, the Anti-Christ.
